so I went to see magic mike with a few of my friends as kind of a joke? we are all ladies who are generally inclined more towards other ladies than dudes. we expected to be mildly amused at best. WE WERE NOT PREPARED. I think it was about fifteen minutes in that we were periodically clutching each other's hands in sheer delight. The convenience store scene was the point of no return. This movie gave me everything I never thought I needed from a movie. I am not sure I will ever be over it????
